After two women’s request to become approvers, now another man named Sher Mohammad has requested to the court that he be allowed to become approver in mega money laundering through fake bank accounts.
During the hearing, the NAB prosecutor told the court that the accuser’s application had been received by the bureau and that it was reviewing the application. During earlier hearing two women suspects had filed a plea in the court offering to give their testimony in the case. The two women told the accountability court’s Judge Arshad Malik that they had made a similar request to the National Accountability Bureau chairman as well.
Moreover the interim bail of Pakistan Peoples Party leaders Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur has been extended till May 15.
The FIA investigated 32 people including Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur, in relation to money laundering from over 20 ‘benami’ accounts, opened in 2013, 2014 and 2015 for transactions worth billions of rupees. Zardari’s close aide Hussain Lawai was arrested in July in connection with the probe. The amount, according to FIA sources, is said to be black money gathered from various kickbacks, commissions and bribes.
